#11 of 2013

Dear Poptastic Readers,

#11 in our Top Songs of 2013 is “Chwyldro” by Gwenno. You can click on the song title to see what Poptastic Confessions had to say about it previously. 

This the first single for Gwenno’s upcoming debut full-length album out next year called Y Dydd Olaf. That is Welsh for The Last Day.

“Chwyldro” is Welsh for “Revolution.” We don’t speak Welsh at all, but with music this good, we don’t mind getting into the groove. Well, the groove is laid back and the melody is beautiful. We sing along even though we don't know the words. Have a listen ...

As you might remember, Gwenno used to be a singer in The Pipettes with her sister Ani who is now the lead singer of The Lovely Wars. Davearama interviewed Gwenno for Poptastic Confessions last year, and she really is quite lovely. Gwenno's song “Ymbelydredd” landed at #3 in our Top Songs of 2012.

This is the cover for her "Ymbelydredd" EP

Her duet with the Boy Least Likely To called "It Could Have Been Me" is on our countdown at #31. Gwenno's amazing song "Despenser St" came in at #25.

“Chwyldro” is available on iTunes and Peski.co.uk. Don't delay! Buy it today!

Cheers then,
—The Poptastic Confessions Collective
